Pugh calls out people's obsession with sex scenes in Don't Worry Darling
When the first trailer for “Don’t Worry Darling” dropped in May, viewers could not stop talking about the on-screen intimacy between Pugh and Styles. Now, the actress said the movie is much more than that. She shared, "When it’s reduced to your sex scenes, or to watch the most famous man in the world go down on someone, it’s not why we do it. It’s not why I’m in this industry. Obviously, the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you’re going to have conversations like that. That’s just not what I’m going to be discussing because (this movie is) bigger and better than that. And the people who made it are bigger and better than that.”
